8.8 into '95 GC?

Long story short, the brackets I had welded onto my 8.8 for my TJ were welded on at a pinion angle set to 10*. Not having any more money to throw at my TJ right now, the 8.8 sits in my garage waiting for a new owner. That got me thinking. With the longer drive-shaft in the GC, would the 8.8 be able to be swapped into the rear with no issues? Are the brackets the same for ZJ/TJ axles? I know the fronts are the same. The 8.8 is already geared the same as my brothers GC (3.73). This would help me get it ready for TDS next year, and get the axle out of my pop's garage before he calls ecology on it.

Thanks for any and all help.

you would have to check but i think stock pinion setting is 6 1/2* and with a SYE it needs to be around 11 1/2*
